Does someone have a FREE linux ‘total’ solution available for
creating a ‘login’ page for wireless systems connecting to a network?
I’ve a Linux system with 2 network cards, they are both different configured and I need a way that when a wireless client is connected the client automatically gets the page where it’s welcomed and has to enter a username/password. After validation: total control of the network /internet
Psst. No-Cat did not work here ..

I don’t think I get it… When the wireless client connects with (for example) putty, he gets a linux login, right? So you want to skip putty and make a connection through a webpage and make the webpage give you a network connection? Could be possible…
when a wireless client wants to WWW / Surf
he needs FIRST to get a ‘LOGIN’ page so that I can verify it is a trusted wireless client, not a drive-by user ..
If you’re looking for a system to limit access to your network I know of a HTTP-authenticator/MAC-address filtering setup used by coffee-houses. Unfortunately it’s $500 a pop. Short of that I think you’re left to manipulating your iptables manually.
try to use web server feature (apache, etc.) redirect to java servlet,perl and use soap to authenticate(if fierwall etc) on the other side of server.
do you have some resources for me?
I’m looking in wireless hardware solution(s) (I’ve found one and will check if I can get a sample) and for software:
There is not time requirement
but should be working on a Qube3 :-)
that’s my linux server
But maybe my infrastructure is not totally correct
Right now I’ve
DSL modem–>DSL router–>Switch–>Qube & systems
& I want the wireless clients not be able to surf without authentication
you want me to develop this type of interface.? yes I can do that. What is yout time requirment.
so flow will look like this
Wireless–>router–>switch–>Qube3–>”AAA” and then let him/her surf the web or content.
i assume Qube3 is running Apache, and we can set up for java or perl talking to Mysql/Oracle for Authentication.
Is this something you are looking at..?
The other option is if u can get IMSI or some Wireless ID we can use that one aginst the hardware and then from that lavel you can stat authenticating.
or creating a virtual posrts for each mobile ID on Qube 3 ( i really don’t know how to do that but just thought , i think it might be a good idea to cret something like this which need some configuration at harware level)
